Get your kiddos writing and creating with this Summer Memory Book!  Let them be the author and illustrator and create a personalized book filled with their summer highlights!

You will need: blank bookglue, tape, crayons, markers, and pictures.


1.  Have your child arrange the pictures as they want mounted in their book.

2.  Tape and/or glue the pictures onto the desired pages.

3.  Write description of each picture (excellent way to get your little one writing).

4.  Once completed, allow your little author/illustrator to present their new book.  I made a special “author’s chair” for my son to read his new book aloud to his sister and me.

  1. What a great idea! We’ve done a few cool things this summer. I’m sure the kids would love to make a memory book. Thanks for linking up and sharing with us at Funtastic Friday. Please join us again for this week’s party.

    1. Thank you! I like your point that it should inspire the authors to write more, so that there is more in their books. 🙂

  2. What a marvelous (and simple) idea! We always make a bucket list come the end of the school year, but we’ve never actually chronicled all that we do! Thanks for this nugget of inspiration! 🙂 Have a great day!

  3. Hi Caitlin. What a wonderful idea. The kid’s summers really do go by so fast. It’s fantastic as a memory and an activity for them to do during the summer. I’ll be doing this for my kids come Christmas time when we have our long summer break here in Australia. I’m featuring this post at tomorrow’s Thriving on Thursdays. Thank you so much for coming. Can’t wait to see what you bring this week.

    1. Hi Anne. What a wonderful idea to make a Memory Book with your children come Christmas vacation/holiday. Thank you for featuring Letters In The Sand. I look forward to joining again at Domesblissity soon!

  4. Make a tactile summer memory book with your child who is blind or visually impaired so they can remember what they did over summer break and share with their classmates in the fall!
